Only the top 2% of all beef earns the coveted USDA Prime rating. However, that is not good enough for Allen Brothers. We take the additional step of hand selecting the highest possible grade of the very best grain fed, pasture raised superior breeds to ensure that you always receive the highest quality and consistency from Allen Brothers.
Our products are hand-cut by highly skilled butchers applying the same artisanal standards pioneered by the neighborhood butcher. The result is perfectly trimmed and consistently cut steaks and roasts beyond compare. Combined with our patented aging process where we dry or wet age the beef prior to cutting results in exceptional flavor in every bite.
Aging is the technique that makes even the finest meat more tender and flavorful. Our dry-aged beef is stored in custom-designed coolers where the beef ages openly. The beef’s enzymes break down and tenderize the meat, giving it a unique flavor and ensuring utmost tenderness. In wet-aging, meat is placed in vacuum-sealed bags, preventing moisture from evaporating. Enzymes break down the meat’s complex proteins from the inside out, producing meat that is more tender, sweet and juicy with a flavor unique to this process.
